In 2009, the Submerged New World team investigated several areas that potentially contain deposits from the Late Pleistocene. This year, the team will return to some of these locations to investigate them more thoroughly. Her Co-principal Investigator C. Andrew Hemmings and Nicolas Alvarado dig a hole through old coral that covers the buried — and ancient — Suwannee River, about 75 miles offshore.
